Chatham-Kent public health is offering walk-in clinics starting Wednesday for youth ages 12-17 to receive the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

All appointments previously booked will be honoured.”
The clinics will run from Wednesday, July 7 to Thursday, July 15.
Anyone aged 18 and older looking to receive their first dose will also be accommodated, the health unit says.
